You can assign to it the values true and false, and you can test it for truth or falsehood, but you cannot add booleans or perform any other type of operation on them. In char, byte, and short, you can see the effect of promotion with the arithmetic operators. Each arithmetic operation on any of those types produces an int result, which must be explicitly cast back to the original type (a narrowing conversion that might lose information) to assign back to that type. With int values, however, you do not need to cast, because everything is already an int. Don\u2019t be lulled into thinking everything is safe, though. If you multiply two ints that are big enough, you\u2019ll overflow the result. The following example demonstrates this: //: operators/Overflow.java // Surprise! Java lets you overflow. public class Overflow { public static void main(String[] args) { 90 Thinking in Java Bruce Eckel Operators 91 int big = Integer.MAX_VALUE; System.out.println("big = " + big); int bigger = big * 4; System.out.println("bigger = " + bigger); } } /* Output: big = 2147483647 bigger = -4 *///:~ You get no errors or warnings from the compiler, and no exceptions at run time. Java is good, but it\u2019s not that good. Compound assignments do not require casts for char, byte, or short, even though they are performing promotions that have the same results as the direct arithmetic operations. On the other hand, the lack of the cast certainly simplifies the code. You can see that, with the exception of boolean, any primitive type can be cast to any other primitive type. Again, you must be aware of the effect of a narrowing conversion when casting to a smaller type; otherwise, you might unknowingly lose information during the cast. Exercise 14: (3) Write a method that takes two String arguments and uses all the boolean comparisons to compare the two Strings and print the results. For the == and !=, also perform the equals( ) test. In main( ), call your method with some different String objects. Summary If you\u2019ve had experience with any languages that use C-like syntax, you can see that the operators in Java are so similar that there is virtually no learning curve. If you found this chapter challenging, make sure you view the multimedia presentation Thinking in C, available at www.MindView.net. Solutions to selected exercises can be found in the electronic document The Thinking in Java Annotated Solution Guide, available for sale from www.MindView.net. Controlling Execution Like a sentient creature, a program must manipulate its world and make choices during execution. In Java you make choices with execution control statements. Java uses all of C\u2019s execution control statements, so if you\u2019ve programmed with C or C++, then most of what you see will be familiar. Most procedural programming languages have some kind of control statements, and there is often overlap among languages. In Java, the keywords include if-else, while, do-while, for, return, break, and a selection statement called switch. Java does not, however, support the much-maligned goto (which can still be the most expedient way to solve certain types of problems). You can still do a goto-like jump, but it is much more constrained than a typical goto. true and false All conditional statements use the truth or falsehood of a conditional expression to determine the execution path. An example of a conditional expression is a == b. This uses the conditional operator == to see if the value of a is equivalent to the value of b. The expression returns true or false. Any of the relational operators you\u2019ve seen in the previous chapter can be used to produce a conditional statement. Note that Java doesn\u2019t allow you to use a number as a boolean, even though it\u2019s allowed in C and C++ (where truth is nonzero and falsehood is zero). If you want to use a non-boolean in a boolean test, such as if(a), you must first convert it to a boolean value by using a conditional expression, such as if(a != 0). if-else The if-else statement is the most basic way to control program flow. The else is optional, so you can use if in two forms: if(Boolean-expression) statement or if(Boolean-expression) statement else statement The Boolean-expression must produce a boolean result. The statement is either a simple statement terminated by a semicolon, or a compound statement, which is a group of simple statements enclosed in braces. Whenever the word \u201cstatement\u201d is used, it always implies that the statement can be simple or compound. As an example of if-else, here is a test( ) method that will tell you whether a guess is above, below, or equivalent to a target number: //: control/IfElse.java import static net.mindview.util.Print.*; public class IfElse { static int result = 0; static void test(int testval, int target) { if(testval > target) result = +1; else if(testval < target) result = -1; else result = 0; // Match } public static void main(String[] args) { test(10, 5); print(result); test(5, 10); print(result); test(5,
